Free Resume Writing Webinar on September 14, 2009

Update your resumeIn honor of September’s Update Your Resume month, I am offering a complimentary webinar, Resumes That Pass the Hiring Manager’s 30 Second Test, on Monday, September 14, at 12pm EST, to anyone who purchases the Happy About My Resume book before September 14, 2009. Here is an overview of the webinar.

Did you know that the average hiring manager spends less than 30 seconds reviewing a candidate’s resume? They don’t really read the document; they scan it for keywords, competencies, and achievement-based content that quickly showcases how a candidate can add value to an organization. Does your current resume pass the 30-second test? Join us to find out. During this webinar participants will discover:

* Methods for incorporating on-message keywords into the resume.
* Exciting and compelling strategies for highlighting your core brand.
* How to write accomplishment-driven, powerful content that gets noticed by hiring managers.

Just forward your receipt for the book to Barbara Safani at and I will sign you up for the webinar. You can also check out my other job search workshops and webinars here.
